Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade the Audio 10 stereo in my 2002 W203.

But I'm getting too bogged down in all the information, so I would appreciate some advice.

Here are my requirements:

  • Good iPhone integration - this includes handsfree and audio playback (videos aren't necessary but would be a bonus)

  • Good audio quality

  • Orange backlight - bit silly, but I'd love it to match the dashboard

  • Look good, not one of these 'boy racer' stereos with crazy flashing light.
  • Compatible with steering wheel controls

  • Navigation isn't necessary but would be a nice bonus

  • £400 budget - including fitting accessories (I might be willing to raise this if someone convinces me)

Also, what adapters do I need? I've been looking at kits like this:

If this is right, that's £100 off my budget already! Damn!

I was looking at the Pioneer AppRadio - however I've heard the quality isn't too great and it's made more for Android. Also, I'm not sure if I want to rely on my iPhone to be connected all the time for functionality.

What do you guys think?

He put an appradio in a 203 and It looked rather good. I think he put some pics up here or on another forum.

I would also like to know if the fitting kit is really required.
